The Bolts

Lightning make no callups on Friday despite injuries, so who dresses on Saturday? "First, it’s clear that Friday’s situation has no bearing on Stamkos. Though there are plenty of signs that Stamkos is possibly nearing a return to the lineup, that certainly is not going to be on Saturday as the Tampa Bay captain was not on the ice."

Injuries to three Lightning centers not as bad as first thought. "Turns out, the lower-body injuries looked worse than they are, the Lightning said Friday, listing Johnson, Namestnikov and Paquette as day-to-day." [Tampa Bay Times]

Erne, Gourde hope to ease pain of latest injuries. "Until the aforementioned injured trio return to action, Gourde and Erne figure to stick around in Tampa Bay a little while longer." [TBL]

SOCOM Sled Hockey. "As part of the Wounded Warriors Care Coalition and Adaptive Sports Week, U.S. SOCOM Operators participated in Sled Hockey at Amalie Arena." [NHL]

Rookie center Brayden Point has become central to the Tampa Bay Lightning's playoff hopes. "He's been phenomenal,'' said Lightning defenseman Victor Hedman. "Coming into training camp, he was actually the guy that really stood out. He works so hard, he's so mature in his play. Very responsible in all parts of the game. He's got a bright future ahead of him." [ESPN]

Lightning announce details for Bolts Family Carnival. "Third-annual Bolts Family Carnival will be held on Sunday, March 19 at AMALIE Arena from 1-4 p.m." [TBL]
